A Wonderful Book,
This review is from: The Victorians: Illustrated Edition (Hardcover)
This is the illustrated edition and, to my knowledge, it has an abridged text as a result. But don't let this put you off - the text still brings you chronogically through the Victorian era in wonderful and sufficient detail. There is no jingoism here, the author is open and honest with a warts and all approach.
But the best part of this book is its accompanying illustrations - again they are displayed chronologically and make a wonderful companion to the text. Great book.
